Lmao… see gist ooh! So a British Airways flight enroute Dubai was forced to return to London’s Heathrow because of ‘smelly poo’ left in the toilet. Cabin crew were unable to fix the poo problem and the smell became unbearable for passengers seated nearby, forcing the plane to turn around near Brussels and land at Heathrow Airport.
A councillor Abhishek Sachdev who was on the flight confirmed the incident. He told the Mail Online:
“The pilot made an announcement requesting senior cabin crew, and we knew something was a bit odd. About 10 minutes later he said you may have noticed there’s a quite pungent smell coming from one of the toilets. He said it was liquid faecal excrement, those are the words he used. He said it’s not a technical fault with the plane, and he was very adamant about that.”
The pilot explained that they had to return for health and safety reasons.
A British Airways spokesperson told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “We’re very sorry for the discomfort to our customers. We provided them with hotel accommodation and rescheduled the flight to depart the following day’s lunchtime on an alternative aircraft.”
